Sound therapy practitioner (STP) education 2021
Sound Therapy Education – 3 module course
This 3 module sound therapy education is the door to the world of sacred sound. It is the door to understand that sound is within everything – and we can use it to heal ourselves.
This course is designed to give you understanding and knowledge of this healing method – not simply the strokes and playing techniques, but to give you a deeper understanding of how sound works with our self-healing system and to expand and shift consciousness.
During approximately 80% of the course will be practical learning where you will learn how to play and combine instruments, different sounds and prepare sound baths and individual sound treatments.
The Healing Art of Tibetan Singing Bowls – During this module, we work in-depth with Tibetan Singing Bowls in individual sessions, sound massages and gong baths.
Gong Playing. This module covers Gong playing techniques in Gong bath and concert, as well as in One-To-One therapy sessions.
Water, Air, Earth, Fire and Space/Silence – 5 different elements in sound therapy. During this module, we will cover the theoretical and practical parts of element and sound expression by using different instruments such as rattles, bird whistles, bells, drums, rain stick, Shruti box and voice.
All modules include individual and group treatments, and all participants can play at the “All Night Gong Puja” after the 3rd Module.

Facilitator: Aiste Venskune
Aiste Venskune is a psychologist, sound therapist, art therapist, life coach and reiki master. Currently, she is on her way to becoming a certified hypnotherapist.
In 2007, Aiste first became interested in sound therapy when she started attending gong baths regularly to find balance during her graduate programme in Psychology at Vytautas Magnus University in Lithuania.
In 2013, her interest deepened when she had the opportunity to explore the effect of a variety of therapeutic instruments at a retreat centre close to Vilnius. Shortly after, Aiste began her training with one of the leading Lithuanian sound therapists Raimondas Binkauskas who taught her to apply singing bowls for healing purposes. Since then, she has trained and played alongside with all heavyweights in the sound therapy community, among them Alicija Eiliakas, Aidan McIntyre and Don Conreaux.
